Learn to Swim Teacher

I've been a learn to swim and squad teacher since 2015 when I gained my AUSTSWIM qualification. I have always loved the water and was a competitive swimmer as a child. I have now moved on to competitive horse-riding, but I still like to incorporate my love of the water into my life.

What I love most about what I do: I enjoy teaching children how to be safe and calm around the water. I find comfort in knowing that in the event of an accident around the water, the children I have taught would know how to remain safe.

When I’m not in the pool you’ll find me: Studying for my Bachelor of Paramedic Science degree or riding my horse

My Perfect Weekend: At the beach with my puppy, my family and some biscuits and cheese
